Fascists beat up Filipino mistaken for Chinese Watch
Brandon Diaz, who is based in Rome, was attacked by four men who told him Chinese nationals should leave Italy. The 22-year-old Filipino sustained bruises on his head and body.
Diaz has already reported the incident to the Philippine Embassy.
Nolasco Sta. Isabel, who has been residing in Rome for over 30 years, said people in public transport were keeping their distance from him.
In a Facebook post of Linda Reyes Gregorio, she shared an experience when she lost her composure and told discriminatory people that she and her companions were not Chinese but actually Filipinos.
I take issue not only with the actions, which are awful, and the hatred they display towards China, but also the notion the article and Filipinos online are spreading that it would be okay if they were only attacking Chinese???
Dalai Says Relax
The reaction from the Chinese government suggests that they realise this is a very serious situation. You don't just impose the largest quarantine in history as a containment method. That's a knee jerk reaction after a string of massive screw ups, and one of the main reasons why the discrimination has become so bad within China and elsewhere.
